LFA Members Make Phoenix's Top 10 Family-Owned Businesses List

web-familybizlist-1-600 The Phoenix Business Journal recently published their annual Top 10 Family-Owned Businesses list for this year, listing out the top locally owned businesses in order of the number of local employees. We weren't surprised to see that many on the list are proud members of Local First Arizona! Here's where they placed on the list and the number of Arizonans they employ:

1. Bashas' Family of Stores: 4,450 3. Harkins Theatres: 1,309 6. Hensley Beverage Company: 800 9. Total Transit Inc.: 407 10. Hickman's Family Farms: 340

Combined, these five locally owned businesses are responsible for over 7,000 local jobs across Arizona. It is important to remember that job creation can come from right inside Arizona's own borders. When we support Arizona's homegrown businesses and create more demand for their goods and services, they will hire local Arizonans to further meet those needs! It goes to show that local job creation rests right in our hands.
